Dietmar Hamann cracks joke about Steve Evans as Leeds United concede

Elland Road Revie Stand

Former Premier League midfielder Dietmar Hamann joked about the Leeds manager job's instability after they conceded against Fulham.

Former Liverpool and Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann could not resist a joke at Steve Evans' expense last night as Leeds United fell one goal down to Fulham.

The ex-Germany international took to Twitter to remark about the insecurity of the Leeds head coaching job after youngster Mousa Dembele had put the home side 1-0 up.

Evans was only appointed as Leeds head coach on Monday, a surprise move after the Whites had fired under performing boss Uwe Rosler.

Rosler was in charge for 11 games, winning just two, having been picked as manager in the summer.

He had replaced Neil Redfearn, who followed Darko Milanic, Dave Hockaday and Brian McDermott as managers fired by new owner Massimo Cellino after the Italian bought the club in early 2014.

Evans is at Leeds on a contract until the end of the season, which has an option of a further 12 month extension.

He had the last laugh as Chris Wood scored a second half penalty to earn his side a point, with Evans quipping after the game speaking to BBC Radio Leeds that he is unbeaten.
